Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In the United States, a state university or state college is one of the public colleges or universities in the state (or territorial) university system. There are no federally-run colleges or universities in the United States other than the United States military academies and military staff colleges. State universities usually offer lower tuition costs to in-state residents, as they are partially funded by state tax dollars.

Notes:

  • As a general rule, schools are not alphabetized by their complete names, but rather by the names by which they are normally called. For example, in a list alphabetized by normal rules, "Auburn University" would precede "University of Alabama", but the schools are virtually always referred to in popular conversation as "Auburn" and "Alabama" (followed by a campus identifier if required by the context). Therefore, in this article, "Alabama" precedes "Auburn".
  • The list also includes schools that grant first-professional doctorates only (e.g., medical schools, law schools, veterinary schools) that are independent of any other school in a state system.
